(October 16, 1925)
Birthdays have never been tough for me. Aging simply opens up new pages of possibilities. Age really doesn’t have any bearing on my ability to look forward with joy.
Eighteen year old Angela Lansbury in her first film Gaslight (1944)
Even though it was her first picture, she had the ability to trasnform herself into the character she was playing as soon as the camera turned.
(March 27, 1899-April 4, 1983)
There’s always a fresh start. Remember that. Never ruminate on negative things: age, sickness, death, money trouble. No matter how old you are, act as if you are going to live forever. then life will never cease to be a beautiful, challenging adventure.
Guys and Dolls
”The companionship of a doll is a pleasant thing even for a period of time running into months, but for a close relationship that can last us through all the years of our life no doll can take the place of aces back to back.”
Greta Garbo | 18 September, 1905 - 15 April, 1990
For the denizens of the first half of the twentieth century, when such images still counted, Garbo was the movie-going experience—theory and practice alike. Some quirk of Nature and Art created a face, a personality, and an erotic presence unprecedented in history. In a way, she could hardly be held accountable for the person she became. Garbo was an anomaly, not a mystery. She was something to be experienced rather than adored, but people did both. And as that experience and adoration continue, so does the restless resistance of her spirit.
